This was a sensible course to take for several reasons. First, Britain was unable to play an assertive role in Far Eastern affairs ± a fact made strikingly clear by London's decision, after Japanese pressure, to close one of China's main supply lines, the Burma Road, for three months. Second, the United States was opposed to Japanese ambitions in Asia and the Pacific. Third, it had sufficient war-making potential to prevail in a future showdown with Tokyo. Finally, it would be better placed than Britain to ensure the security of Singapore, Australia and New Zealand if no British fleet were at hand to counter a Japanese attack on these territories.

The need for good relations with the United States made it vital to solve the Pacific islands problem.
